High Schooler Bench Presses 700 Pounds
According to the YouTube video above and news reports from earlier this week, you're looking at Matt Poursoltani, a senior at Pilot Point High in Texas. He's a high school football player and just set a new Texas state weightlifting record by bench pressing a jaw-dropping 700 pounds.
Video of Poursoltani's feat has become a hit with sports fans online, and for good reason — it's reportedly just five pounds less than the NFL bench press record.
